Top 10 Colleges with the Best Health Care Services

Nobody likes to get sick during the school year. I mean, you do get a few days off from classes, but after you recover, you have a mountain of homework and readings to catch up on, you have to find those in-class lecture notes from a fellow classmate, and you probably don’t feel completely up to par for a few days after you return to classes.

So, whenever I get sick during the school year, I rush myself to my school’s health services center to try to get myself some medication ASAP. Although the health center on campus is decent, it’s never been something to write home to my parents about. I guess I should have paid attention to the Princeton Review’s list of the Top 10 Colleges with the Best Health Care Services.

Other students have bigger issues, however. Chronic diseases, mental health concerns and sexual education and services are all things your college’s health center should be able to help you with, but not all schools are created equal. Choosing a school that is best suited to help your personal health needs is imperative for every student to consider.

Without any further adu, here are the top 10 schools you should go to if you are notorious for getting sick – or if your parents just want to have fantastic health care services available on your school’s campus.

Music Using HIV Virus Composed by University of Georgia Grad Student

HIV/AIDS awareness is widespread. People show their support by wearing the red ribbon, donating money to research and running marathons, but I bet you never thought that instrumental music could increase could be used to raise HIV/AIDS awareness.

Alexandra Pajak, a graduate student at the University of Georgia, combined the complexities of the HIV virus with music, and named it “Sounds of HIV.”

While the pleasing sounds of the CD are an interesting take on the virus, Pajack said she hopes no one with the disease is offended by her music. She also hopes her musical-breakdown of the virus will give a “socially minded, human take on HIV.” Read the rest of this entry »

College Football Week 3 Recap

michigan stateSpecial teams and last-minute heroics were at the forefront of the three best college football games from the past weekend.

1) Sparty stuns Notre Dame: ESPN called it “The Call of the Year.” Certainly, it was the play of Week 3. Michigan State punter/holder Aaron Bates threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Charlie Gantt on a fake field goal in overtime, as the Spartans shocked Notre Dame 34-31 to improve to 3-0 on the season. The euphoria was short-lived however, as MSU Head Coach Mark Dantonio suffered a mild heart attack after the game. He’s said to be recovering, but is out for the foreseeable future. The Spartans are #23 in the latest coaches poll.

2) Wisconsin blocks Arizona State: All the Sun Devils needed to tie the Badgers was an extra point–arguably the most high-percentage play in sports. But Wisconsin blocked Thomas Weber’s kick with 4:09 to go, and Arizona State never got the ball again, falling 20-19. Prior to that kick, Weber had made 106 of his previous 111 extra points. Weber also missed a 25-yard field goal, only his second miss in 29 tries from less than 30 yards. The kicking woes bailed out an atrocious Wisconsin kick coverage unit, which allowed two returns over 95 yards, one for a touchdown. Read the rest of this entry »

College Football Week #2 Preview

Ohio StateWith the opening week of the college football season behind us, and the BCS in danger of being busted, it’s once again time to take a look at the three biggest games to watch this week.

Note: Since the USA Today coaches poll factors into the BCS, all team rankings will be based on that.

No. 14 Penn State at No. 1 Alabama. The Tide will likely be without injured Heisman trophy winner Mark Ingram in the backfield, but it’s not likely to matter. The Nittany Lions will have a freshman as quarterback and star running back Evan Royster didn’t exactly light up the scoreboard against Youngstown State. While a PSU win would be huge for the Big-10, it’s going to be a tall order to beat Nick Saban in Alabama. Read the rest of this entry »

Early this month, Damon Evans, the athletic director of the University of Georgia, was arrested for drunk driving as he was swerving in and out of lanes along Atlanta’s roads.

“As I sit before all of you, I am very ashamed and embarrassed by my actions,” Evans said at a news conference. “I let this university down, I let my family down, I let the Bulldog nation down. I believe my actions have put a black cloud over our program. I never thought I would bring so much shame to this storied university.”

Iconic Bands Born on College Campuses

RockerWhile students enroll in college for a scholastic pursuit, many find that their college careers foster their social and artistic aspirations as well.

In fact, five iconic bands were actually humbly founded on college campuses and then grew to be the international sensations they are today.

1. Coldplay: This British band was first organized by lead vocalist Chris Martin and guitarist Johnny Buckland. The two met at University College London’s orientation week. Originally known as Pectoralz, the band changed their name after another student’s band, who was also called Coldplay, per that student’s suggestion.

2. Creed: Lead singer Scott Stapp and guitarist Mark Tremonti went to high school together in Florida but formed their band, Creed, in college at Florida State University and released their first album in 1997. Read the rest of this entry »

Best Rivalries in College Football

When I was in school in Gainesville, there wasn’t a bigger game than when the Gators played Florida State. Except when we played University of Georgia on neutral territory, aptly nicknamed the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.” Even in recent years when both the Seminoles and the Bulldogs have been no match for the Gators, those games were still the highlight of the season, if only for the ultimate bragging rights.

ohio state michigan rivalryI recently came across a poll ranking some of the biggest college football rivalries, and above all others, Michigan and Ohio State were the clear winners. This game attracts national interest because most games have determined the Big Ten Conference title as well as the Rose Bowl match ups, and have also influenced the outcome of the national championship. ESPN ranked this game in 2000 as the greatest North American sports rivalry. Hands down, everyone agrees on the Number 1 spot, but there is a lot of discrepancy on who else should make the list. I did some research, and then asked some sports fan friends their opinions. This is what we came up with.

1. Ohio State vs. Michigan – Ohio State players get a gold charm in the shape of a pair of pants if they win. Since 1913, the two teams have combined for all or part of 70 Big Ten titles and have finished 1-2 in the standings 15 times since 1968. Read the rest of this entry »
